Hugo Schuler stands out as one of the most prominent Argentinian pianists of his generation. Portrayed as a "fascinating pianistic phenomenon" and a "giant of Bach's interpretation of our days" ("The Listener", Germany), he is praised for his "masterful piano art" and his "profound musicality" ("La Nación", Argentina, 5-stars Review).

He was taught and guided by distinguished Mtros such as Aldo Antognazzi, Guillermo Scarabino, Alicia de Larrocha, Tensy Krismant, Jordi Mora and Christoph Schlüren. Distinguished with 1st prizes at the most relevant piano competitions in Argentina, such as International "Pau Casals" Competition, "Festivales Musicales" Biannual Competition, C.E.P. Competition, "Alberto Williams" Competition and Frederic Chopin National Competition, he also obtained important prizes at European competitions which contributed to consolidate his international career.

Renowned for his exceptionally wide repertoire, he has played in concert epic piano cycles of the keyboard literature such as J.S.Bach's 1st and 2nd complete book of "The Well-Tempered Clavier", W.A.Mozart's complete 18 piano sonatas cycle and Beethoven's Diabelli Variations. Schuler has appeared as a concerto soloist with numerous orchestras including Buenos Aires' Philharmonic Orchestra and Argentina's National Symphonic Orchestra, showing his mastery of the great romantic tradition by playing key masterpieces of the repertoire such as Brahms' monumental 2nd piano concerto, Liszt's 1st piano Concerto and Chopin's 2nd piano concerto, among others.

Internationally, he performs at important concert halls in Germany, Holland, Belgium, Poland and Spain. Praised by European critics, Hugo was selected in Germany for the world premiere of works by Heinrich Kaminski and Reinhard Schwarz-Schilling (renowned German composers of the 20th century) and its record registration on a double CD for the German label Aldilà Records (Naxos) which also includes Bach's famous Goldberg Variations.
